Before following these steps, please be sure that you have:
Added your website's URL (either during the signup process or in the settings page)
Check step 1 - 4 in the Get Started with Legal Monster guide to create all of the above.
To install your widget, you'll need your cookie widget code snippet.
To find your code snippet, go to the Legal Monster dashboard and select "Widgets" in the side menu. Click on the cookie widget you previously created and copy the code.
It will look like this:
To insert the code snippet on your page, click on "Settings" in your home menu and select "Advanced" in the dropdown. Finally, click on "Code Injections".
Add the Legal monster cookie widget code snippet as the last piece of code the text area under "Footer", and click "Save".
The final step you need to take to make sure your cookies are compliant is to block the scripts that set them on your website, so the widget can enable them only when a visitor gives consent.
This step is a bit more technical, however, this guide shows you how to categorise the scripts that set cookies on your website to enable blocking. You might need a developer to help you.
Squarespace does, however, allow you to block their analytics cookies in the home menu. Note that disabling these permanently can affect your site.
To block the Squarespace cookies, you can disable Analytics and Performance cookies:
In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Cookies & Visitor Data.
Check Disable Squarespace Analytics Cookies.
Congratulations on completing your first step towards collecting compliant cookie consent. Pad your self on the back and know that our monster Sven is proud of you.
